Public Transit Strikes in Winnipeg

Originally written June 8 2008

Word is that Winnipeg Transit may be ready to strike. Talks have been stalled (no pun intended) for some time now. Compared to some jurisdictions, Winnipeg has not had a lot in the way of transit strikes. There have been only three:

Metro Transit: 26 January 1976 to 12 March 1976
47 days

Winnipeg Electric Railway Company
May/June 1919

Winnipeg Street Railway Company
March 1906
